Apple's high-end tablet computer is the iPad Pro. The new iPad Pro models come with a strong M1 chip, a Thunderbolt port, a better front-facing camera, a Liquid Retina XDR mini-LED display option on the larger model, and up to 16GB of RAM and 2TB of storage. Every 12 to 18 months, Apple releases a new iPad Pro.
There are presently two different iPad Pro models available. The first has an 11-inch LED Liquid Retina display and a beginning price of $799, while the second has a superior 12.9-inch mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display and a starting price of $1,099.
Then there's the performance: Apple's M1 chipset has gotten a lot of attention, and this is the first time the company has used its own-brand silicon in an iPad. Is it definitely necessary? Probably not, but the latest iPad Pro is a terrific choice if you want absolutely remarkable power that blows every other tablet out of the water.
Unless you're heavily gaming, using power-hungry apps, or pushing the tablet to its multi-tasking boundaries, having this much power on tap won't be appreciated. This will speed up the loading of apps like YouTube, Netflix, and your email, but the difference will be little in most circumstances, and you'll only notice when using the App Store's most demanding experiences. The Thunderbolt port is another desktop-grade capability. It still has the same USB-C connectivity as previously, but you can now connect it to Thunderbolt-compatible external storage drives for quicker data transfer speeds. You can also use docks to connect the iPad to external monitors. But don't be fooled by all the desktop-grade features Apple is promoting. This system will nevertheless lack the dependability of a traditional laptop. Certainly not because it lacks sufficient power. There's just something strange about it that makes working with it feel restricted. I linked the iPad Pro to an external display, for example, and it still merely replicates the iPad's screen. Apple, give me a two-screen solution!
Apple needs to free the iPad Pro to justify selling a high-priced tablet with the capabilities of a professional laptop. This doesn't have to be as simple as "run Mac apps on the iPad," but it should include correct processing of external monitors and switching between multiple windows while putting up material.
The tale of iPadOS 15 is still being written. When the OS officially launches this fall, it will have additional features than those announced recently. Hopefully, this will propel the iPad Pro to prominence, where it belongs.
